See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

This was originally built in the 19th century by the local bigwig’s daughter as her marital home after she had come back from her honeymoon in Switzerland and you can definitely see the alpine influences in its chalet like architecture. At one time the pub was perversely given an Indian Raj theme but following a more recent refurbishment much of the original house is now open to be seen. With the mansion came impressive grounds to the front. Mature trees and well-tended lawns lead you to the entrance. It has a traditional public bar which supports an active darts team, and a spacious, comfortable lounge arranged around a central feature fireplace. A thorough refurbishment took place in mid-2017; this did not affect any of the historic features. It is simply a really great pub. The walls feature memorabilia from the former Renolds Chains factory which stood opposite. Children are allowed in during dining times. Food is popular, with specialities of pies, Fish Fridays and Sunday roasts. They have quiz nights every Thursday.
